2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Full grassy aroma with a pepper and citrus note. Tang in the flavour, some pepper and a peppery finish. Some grease in the mouthfeel. Not a bad lager, but doesn’t taste much like a pilsner

A golden lager. Crisp cereals with a hint of corn and iron to the nose. Sweet with a nettle bitterness. The bitterness is light white peppercorn and lasts for avery short period. There is a little arugula herbiness.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Poured clear, golden/yellow with a moderate white head that faded quickly to a thin ring around the surface of the beer. Nose had pungent and soapy hops. A little bit astringent on the nose. A little over carbonated, sort of vicious on the palate. Some sweetness and cracker like grains with hop bitterness that added earthiness, pine, and some citrus. Sort of meh. I don’t understand the point in bottling this Fresh Hop Pilsner. Maybe would be a great tap, one off experiment.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle from S.Salem Freddys.$5.99
Typical pilsner..cooking oil yellow with a small bubbly white head.
Again pretty typical aromas, bready hop and a grassy hoppiness.
Not typical taste..starts off semi sweet and very malty like a helles lager, then gets some bitterness, but its not really that pleasant.like a slight battery acidity bitterness.,then fades to sweetness again. Odd
Mouthfeel is generally acceptable if not thick.
I judged this as a malt liquor and as such it is good..its a terrible pilsner however
